It appears so. The Country Music Awards (#CMAAwards) in November 2012 went as high as having 57,600 tweets per hour at its peak, while the #Grammys held its highest spike at 985,700 tweets per hour. Its related hashtag, #Grammys2013, did not disappoint, having 49,100 tweets per hour at its highest. R&B superstar Usher even went as far as saying that this may be the best Grammys ever.




Why Ed Sheeran Was Trending

On another note, it appears not only the event hashtag is trending but also support for British pop artist Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran), who appeared on his Grammy debut performance with Sir Elton John.


Sheeran missed out on a win for his hit single "The A Team" for Song of the Year to Fun.'s "We Are Young", causing my fans to highlight on social media that, perhaps, he should have won. Hashtags #WeAreProudofEdSheeran, #EdIsOurWinner and #WeLoveYouEdSheeran trended worldwide. grammy5
